So, I read something on the Halopedia page about the Halo 3 level Floodgate, and I’m trying to see if it works on the 360 version of Halo 3 before trying it out on MCC. According to the Miscellaneous section under Trivia, “At the end of the factory area it is possible to push any surviving Marines up the stairs where the Flamethrower is. If pushed far enough they will eventually walk the rest of the way and accompany you for the rest of the level up until you enter the ruined Flood ship”.
I’ve tried and tried to push one marine towards the stairs (not the ramp which players would usually take to get up to the flamethrower) leading up to the flamethrower, and he keeps running back to his position while saying stuff like “You’re uh, you’re a dude, right?” and “Do you have an extra sock I could borrow?”. It started to get tedious until I somehow discovered that when you push and melee the small crates towards the stairs at a low pace, and push the marine towards one of them, they take cover beside them, and when I pushed another crate forward, he moved to that one. I managed to get the crates near the stairs, so the marine was getting closer, but then I must’ve accidentally triggered him to run back to his position, which aggravated me even more.
So, is this trick actually possible to pull off in Floodgate? or did Halopedia lie? I really hope this is possible, because it would sound cool (as having both marines and elites accompanying you in the control room exterior fight in The Covenant and keeping your spec-ops elites and grunts alive for them to accompany you throughout The Oracle) to have both marines and elites accompanying you for the rest of the way until you enter the ruins of the Indulgence of Conviction. I also hope it’s possible to pull this off on MCC.
